David and Goliath in the Bible
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a simple plan, using 4 principles, to put into action to deal with those ugly giants that are getting in your way?
The plan and the keys are located in 1 Samuel 17, which gives the account of the story of David and Goliath.
Keys – David and Goliath in the Bible
Let’s get started with the first key to unlock your victory taken from David and Goliath in the Bible. David has already faced Goliath on the battlefield and the giant has just finished telling him how he will feed his flesh to the birds.
David responds boldly, and many would say quite arrogantly. He tells Goliath that he will be losing his head shortly and that all will know that there is a God in Israel.
The first key is SPEAKING OUT LOUD the results you intend to have as you stand in victory. I am not saying that you can randomly wipe out someone who is
standing in your way. Your motivation needs to be like David’s was.
He stepped up to the battle because Goliath had been mocking the name of the Lord. David had a Godly motive.
The second key to unlock your victories from the battle seen between David and Goliath in the Bible is BACKING UP YOUR WORDS WITH ACTION.
A lot of people are ready to speak big but aren’t willing to back things up with their actions. David approached his 9 foot adversary with a sling and let loose his forehead breaker.
For forty days, no trained or experienced soldier in King Saul’s army was
willing to step out to face the giant. David did and he relied on the Lord’s instructions and not Saul’s armor.
The third key to unlock your victories taken from David and Goliath in the Bible is ACCEPTING AND RECEIVING YOUR VICTORY BY FAITH.
Not faith in your ability or good looks, but faith in God. Expect to see God move on your behalf.
How can you know God wants you to win?
His desire for us is to be the head and not the tail, to be above only and not beneath, to lend to many nations and not borrow. He is always leading us to triumph, to victory. That’s how you know.
After the giant fell, David took Goliath’s sword and relieved him of his head just like he said it would happen.
Last Key From David and Goliath in the Bible
The last key to your victories found in the epic contest between David and Goliath in the Bible is GIVING A TESTIMONY. Why is this a key when you already have your victory?
By giving a testimony, you are giving the glory to God. You are not bragging on yourself but bragging on God’s greatness and love and favor. By following
this final key, you are setting yourself up for your NEXT VICTORY.
David and Goliath is such a powerful story for us to remember when we are faced with outrageous odds. The next time you have to step into the ring with your giant, put these 4 David vs Goliath keys into play, and walk away with your victory.
